the president can take without having to wait for any congressional action. let's bring in our cnn white house correspondent brianna keilar. she's working the story for us. what are you hearing? >> reporter: wolf, i'm told that there is very much a sense in this meeting between vice president joe biden and advocates of gun control as well as those who have suffered gun violence themselves or lost loved ones to it that there was actually very much a sense that this was an opportunity to do something and they believe they have a bit of, i guess you could say, a mandate to do something because of poll numbers showing the public opinion has shifted in this. the news that the vice president made today was that the white house is looking to go it alone, at least in some ways as it chooses to tackle this problem. go it alone without congress' help and observers of this debate, as you know, have said that this is definitely a possibility but biden today confirmed that it's something the white house is pursing. here's what he said. >> i want to make it clear that we are not going to get caught up in th

with spending cuts. let's go live to cnn white house correspondent brianna keilar. >> reporter: president obama stating very clearly today that he will not negotiate deficit reduction, tax increases and spending cuts attached to the debt ceiling. this of course does follow that bruising battle the year before last, where he did negotiate on the issue, and the u.s. nearly went to the brink of default. he said that congress has to pay the bills that it's already racked up. >> you don't go out to dinner and then, you know, eat all you want and then leave without paying the check. and if you do, you're breaking the law. and congress should think about it the same way that the american people do. you don't -- now, if congress want, to have a debate about maybe we shouldn't go out to dinner next time, maybe we should go to a more modest restaurant, that's fine. that's the debate that we should have. >> reporter: in this press conference that was called last minute in the east room, president obama said he will negotiate a deal on deficit reduction but not, as he put it, quote, with a gun to the head
on inside that theater during the shooting rampage back in july. cnn's casey wian is live. >> reporter: good morning. it's been six months since james holmes allegedly gunned down dozens of people killing 12 in a colorado movie theater. even today, the sights and sounds of that day are both chaotic and disturbing. aurora, colorado, just after midnight july 20th, 2012. >> 315 and 314, first shooting at century theaters. >> he came down with his gun in my face. he was about three feet away from me at that point. in that instant, i didn't know what to do. i was honestly terrified. >> right by the exit. just firing away. he's not aiming at a specific person, he's just aiming everywhere trying to hit as many people as he can. >> i've got a child victim. i need rescue at the back door of theater nine, now. >> just got to get out. just got to get out the door. just get my kids out of here. >> suspect is going to be a male, unknown race. black camo outside outfit believed to be wearing a vest, gas mask, and multiple long guns. >> reporter: that suspect, 25-year-old james holmes, is charged with kill
sponsorship money and may be ready to testify against others. cnn's ed lavandera is live in austin, texas. ed, what do we know about this confession? >> i think the million-dollar question is to what extent lance armstrong apologizes and what will that sound like? will he apologize or admit to using steroids throughout all of his cycling career? i mean to what level will this be done? more importantly, just how he will say it. not many details other than beyond that headline, that according to media reports lance armstrong will admit to using steroids in his interview with oprah winfrey. not much coming from oprah winfrey as well. shortly after wrapping up the interview here in austin, texas, oprah sent out a brief tweet. just wrapped with lance armstrong more than 2 1/2 hours and he came ready. she wrote "ready" in all caps. if past interviews are any indication, lance armstrong, you knowing has over the years, john, been a very tough interview, very steadfast, so it will be very interesting to see how his tone and attitude changes now if he has to be a lot more forthright and contrite. we'l

"outfront" tonight, drama, intrigue, tears, it was almost byzantine. under fire, john boehner narrowly won a first round vote to keep his job as house speaker. it's pretty amazing, because the last time the first round of voting was too close to call was 1923. so after all the votes were meticulously counted, boehner's tally topped out at 220. that is only six more than the bare minimum he needed to keep his job. now, as for the tears, of course,

confirms to cnn that the operation seems to have ended for the night, but it is not over. and i wanted to quote what this official told us here at cnn. quote, there are still hostages and there are still terrorists, so tomorrow is another day. the algerian press service reports numerous casualties in the operation. the exact number, still unknown right now. and a lot of questions already are coming from the united states about the algerian government's tactics in the operation that could have put the hostages in jeopardy. now, we also want to let you know that right now, there's a chartered flight en route of bp employees from algeria. it is headed towards london to gatwick airport. now, that could be landing at any moment. we don't yet know if the passengers are any of the freed hostages or if there are americans on board, but as we get that information, we're going to share that with you. the brother of an irish national who escaped from captivity had a harrowing story. he spoke to cnn today and described what happened to his brother. >> yeah, but just found out recently that he'd be
to the right place. >> cnn's athena jones is live in our washington bureau. good morning. john boehner was re-elected, but it wasn't easy, was it? >> about a dozen of his colleagues voted against him or for someone else like eric cantor or just said present. they abstained from voting. they said they wanted to put the speaker on notice. it isn't as though his leadership, him winning that election, was ever in doubt. let's listen to what one new congressman had to say to explain his vote. >> we are challenging leadership to let him know that we're going to hold him accountable just like i get held accountable in my district. we want to let him know we're watching. we're willing to work with leadership, and i look forward to doing that. that's why i stuck with the republican party with mr. cantor. >> and so in the end, boehner got 220 out of the caucus, 234. it's a small percentage of people that didn't end up voting for him, but it still signals there could be a little dissension in the ranks, which is what we've been seeing already. >> dissension in the ranks. we have a debt ceiling to tackle

"usa today" reporting that cycling superstar lance armstrong will admit to doping in an upcoming interview with oprah winfrey. >> the evidence came out against him, a massive file of evidence came out against him in october. and then in the three months since then, he's been keeping a pretty low profile. and i think he's been deciding what to do about it. he's kind of cornered himself because for many years now, he's strenuously denied these doping allegations and with all the evidence that's come out against hi
